Kiwi Benefits For Hair That Will Surprise You

Love kiwis? Then you’re off to a good start! In this article, we’re rounding up the top 3 kiwi benefits for hair that you need to know.

Sweet and tart, refreshing and deliciouskiwi is a fruit that’s packed with nutrients. From a smoothie to a muesli topping, kiwis are incredibly versatile to cook with. As such, it’s a great addition to anyone’s diet but especially for pregnant women. 

Studies have shown that kiwi is rich in folate, an especially important nutrient during pregnancy because it prevents babies from developing neural tube defects. Besides folate, kiwi also contains “exceptionally high” levels of vitamin C. It is also rich in dietary fibre, potassium, vitamin E, antioxidants, phytonutrients, and more.

All these vitamins and nutrients make kiwi a formidable fruit because of its many health benefits such as boosting the immune system, aiding digestion, treating asthma, and even managing blood pressure.

However, did you know that kiwi also boasts of a range of benefits for hair? In this article, we’re turning the spotlight on the top kiwi benefits for hair that are especially useful for pregnant women!

3 Kiwi Benefits for Hair


1. Fights hair loss and promotes hair growth

Vitamins C and E are antioxidants that help in fighting hair loss. These two vitamins also help combat hair loss and improve its overall health by keeping stress (and free radicals) at bayone of the common reasons for hair fall.

In an article published in the Daily Mail, hair loss expert Dr Bashar Bizrah reveals that kiwi contains minerals like zinc, magnesium, and phosphorus that “help to promote blood circulation in the scalp.” This, in turn, leads to stronger hair and faster hair growth.

But first, what causes hair loss during pregnancy? From hormonal changes to thyroid issues and mineral deficiencies to stress, read more in our article about pregnancy hair loss here:

2. Prevents premature greying

First of all, let us be clear that there’s nothing with grey hair. These days, it won’t be hard to find men and women changing their hair colours to a striking grey. However, for some who would prefer to maintain their natural hair colour for as long as possible (yes, because grey hair is part of life, mama), you may want to consider adding kiwi to your diet.

It’s rich in copper, a mineral that helps in melanin production. With melanin being responsible for the colour of your hair, a slower melanin production then leads to grey or white hair. 

3. Helps treat dandruff

With high amounts of iron, zinc, and omega-3 fatty acids, kiwi also proves to be beneficial in treating dandruff. According to Medical News Today, zinc not only prevents fungal growth but also removes excess skin cells from the scalp. In fact, a study in 2016 revealed zinc deficiency is listed as one of the contributing factors for dandruff.
